Hi, guys —

  • Can my legal name be left off my Confirmation certificate so I can only use my Confirmation saint's name?

I plan on changing my name to that saint's name soon and would rather have no record of my previous name.

  • Also how can I amend my Baptism certificate to reflect my new name?

Matthew

Bob replied:

Matthew,

This is a question for your diocese. Administrative policies may differ from place to place.

Peace,

Bob Kirby
